Fire & Rain - Supported by Gracie Falls

Fire & Rain - Supported by Gracie Falls


Presented by: Fire and Rain

Fire & Rain - Supported by Gracie Falls

(perform the Music of James Taylor
& Carole King)
Fire and Rain is not a
tribute or sound-a-like act. It’s simply
a collection of five of the best musicians from the North of England coming
together to play music they love.
Expect the classic James
Taylor & Carole King songs played with skill, passion, emotion, humour and
humility. Incredibly in-demand musicians
in their own right, Tom Townsend (The Tom Townsend Blues Band) Rich Adams &
Mark Gordon (Stony), Paul Tilley and Bob Walker abandon their usual bands and
projects for this one-off tour to bring the joy of Taylor & King’s music to
you in what they call a ‘magical musical holiday’.
The band is delighted
that Gracie Falls and Alex Staples will be supporting them on a number of the
concerts. Gracie is an award winning singer and songwriter in her own right,
and she will be accompanied by the wonderful guitarist Alex Staples.
Building on the success
of the last few years, ‘Fire and Rain’ are delighted to be able to bring this
wonderful concert to the YMCA Theatre, Scarborough and hope that you will join
them to celebrate the music of two timeless singer songwriters and performers
in what will be a memorable evening of first class entertainment.
Falls has the voice of an angel. Her haunting melodies and engaging lyrics
draws the listener to the stories she has to tell. From slow ballads to lively
renditions of her own songs and a few country ballad covers she takes you on
her musical journey. It is hardly surprising that SHE IS A NATIONAL AWARD
WINNING SONGWRITER and worthy of it. Gracie beat three female song writing talents in the 2016
London final of the UK unsigned songwriter of the year 2016.
is frequently backed by her partner Alex
Staples who is an amazing guitar accompanist.
following two reviews probably best sum up Gracie –but come to see her and
judge for yourself!
3 words to describe her music are "emotive, unique, and relatable".
And to describe herself: "bubbly, passionate and headstrong".
After speaking to her I can add many more positive words to describe her;
confident, friendly, professional, driven and down to earth being just a few.
And of course she is incredibly talented.
Her music is poignant and her lyrics engaging.
Her songs will linger in your mind long after they've
Lucy, Britz n

"I was massively impressed with Gracie. She
has one of those really lovely angelic voices and the whole audience was rapt
with her, you could've heard a pin drop at certain times...her voice just rang
out across the wood. I just stood there completely transfixed by that..."
